You leave the secured ski area when riding on the Powder Department Runs! The runs are NOT groomed, NOT secured from avalanches (and other alpine dangers) and are NOT checked. The Powder Department Runs are – since they are open ski area - not declared open or closed.

You act exclusively at your own responsibility and are outside of the area of liability of the lift operators, which offer only the open, prepared pistes and ski routes and assume no liability whatsoever.

Freeride Runs should only be entered with a certified mountain and ski guide.
